If I could take a picture of the inside of my head, it might look something like this. Disorganization rules in there. It always surprises me when people think I am an organized person but after seeing this self portrait, they may change their minds. : )
It gets especially bad this time of year with all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays. I never feel like I'm in control. I envy the people that are able to fully enjoy the season because they have done their shopping early, have the presents wrapped and are able to relax and bake cookies knowing that everything is done. Each year, I think I will do better but I seem to be getting worse. My feeling of bah humbug gets worse every year too. I'm writing this on Dec. 23rd (and pre-posting) in case you're thinking that I should be able to relax now that the holidays are over.
I plan to change in 2011. I'm beginning to make my list of new year's resolutions and you can bet that being ready for the holidays will be first on my list!!!
I had to have a silk painting fix. I enjoy painting on silk so much and miss it if I go too long without doing it. I love the graphic quality of it. This is the second silk painting of grapes that I've done. They are really fun to paint and they bring back happy memories of visits to the wine country.

Here's another "loose" painting. I'm really enjoying this process. There's something very exciting about getting a piece of paper wet and then dropping in paint and watching what happens. This scene looks so cold to me. I'm glad our winters here are relatively warm.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
